Nobody I vote for ever wins

I got the low feeling today, walking over rainslicked sidewalks to get lunch. Nothing around me except office parks and car dealerships. I work in a wasteland. And Gonzalez lost, just like everyone else I've voted for in the last three years. I was for Nader, against the recall. I supported Moveon's 'close-race candidates' in the last congressional elections. They all lost. One of them-- Paul Wellstone-- died in a plane crash mere days after I gave money to his reelection campaign.


On the plus side, at least Gonzalez didn't get crushed by a falling piano.
